Getting it right for every employee: Disability inclusive recruitment

Business Disability Forum Getting it right webinar series graphic.

This is the second webinar in the series ‘Getting it right for every employee’. This series explores the employee life cycle from recruitment, then retention, and onto career progression. It aims to equip employers with resources and practical tips to improve their practice, raise awareness of the importance of workplace adjustments, and transform the experience of disabled employees.

‘Getting it right for every employee: Disability inclusive recruitment’ will discuss ways to identify and remove barriers in the recruitment process from job descriptions to onboarding.

Our CEO Diane Lightfoot and Head of Policy and Research Angela Matthews will address the following questions:

  • What do disabled people need when applying for a job?
  • How should you ask candidates about adjustments?
  • What gives disabled people the best start in an organisation?

This webinar is open to all, but will be particularly useful for business leaders, HR professionals, and D&I professionals.
